November Meeting -- Sunday, November 1st at 2:00pm
Our November Chocolate Club tasting will be dedicated to the single origin, gourmet Goodnow Farms Chocolate. Discover why this small and relatively new chocolate maker from Massachusetts is the recipient of so many national and international awards for excellency. John Lendorff will be joined by chocolate maker and founder of Goodnow Farms, Tom Rogan.

The chocolate included with this month's ticket is the award-winning 70% Peru bar from Ucayali. Please select at least two more bars to participate on our tasting with John Lehndorff and his guest, Tom Rogan. A Zoom link will be sent to you the morning of the event. 

BONUS! What better to accompany these outstanding bars than a bonus bar from Manoa Chocolate! Here's what Dylan Butterbaugh, the maker of Manoa Chocolates, has to say about our bonus bar:  "This farm is on the island of Oahu where our factory is located as well. It is the first time this 10 acre cacao farm in Mililani has produced pods/seeds and the flavor profile is unique. Bright, tart cherry flavors will make people question if we added fruit to the bar. Despite it's high fruity qualities, it is still a balanced 70% dark chocolate with little to no bitterness or astringency. Aloha!"
